Frogs are back

So what is the story?

Frog Spawn

Well, the frogs are back in our garden pond. They actually first arrived over a week ago. But then the temperatures dropped and we had all that snow and they vanished. But yesterday they returned! I counted 99. Today, they are in such a mating frenzy I cannot count them! Trouble is as soon as you go out to take a photograph most of them disappear under water, so I cannot show you what it really looks like. Luckily, some are braver and not so photo shy – or perhaps they just have their mind on something more import, like producing the next generation!

      Is it late for yours to be returning? Ours usually first appear around Valentines’ day so definitely late for us.

      Thank you Olga. I find it hard to get a good photo of frogs when they are in water, all that water reflects the light in strange ways, even from their bodies. Will keep trying though!!

    Quite incredible pictures with your 99 guests. You must have such a healthy & vibrant pond. Interesting that we released tadpoles into our pond 2 years ago and they were promptly eaten by the newts. Not much we can do, I suppose?

      We have newts in our pond too, but I suppose they will be soo many tadpoles they can’t eat them all! Maybe some more vegetation cover in your pond would help??
